Massachusetts Highways Expected to be Hazardous Today

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation reports that extremely heavy snowfall rates will occur starting this morning, with snow falling at a rate of 2-4+ inches per hour, and continuing to fall at this rate for several hours before tapering off in the afternoon.

Peak snowfall will occur between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Precipitation will end in southeastern Massachusetts by mid-afternoon, but will linger into tonight across much of the rest of the Commonwealth.

  • Downed trees and power outages, especially in areas where snowfall is wet and heavy or where snow is expected to transition to rain.
